Built to last…
Designed and built for professional use, you can depend on our flatdeck trailers to do the job week in week out, reliably and safely. High strength and durability are essential requirements for this type of trailer and have always been the mainstay of our design policy. We recognize that it’s tough out there!
The chassis on our low loading trailers are hot-dip galvanized in our on-site plant, as are all the frames and brackets for the optional equipment. The platform is 18mm high-density plywood with a tough phenolic resin coating on both sides. The optional panels are formed from pre-galvanized steel sheet with a generous 2mm thickness.
LM146 flatdeck trailerOur flatdeck trailers are unrivalled not only for strength and durability but also for their adaptability. In the basic form they are supplied with all the fittings to allow the later addition of optional extras – hinge tubes and sockets to accept the dropside kit (excluding Beaver Tail series), stowage rails for the loading skids and spigots for the prop stands.
Other other options include mesh-panelled side extensions, aluminium treadplate platform covering and winches.
The Ifor Williams beam axle system
Like all Ifor Williams commercial trailers, the flatdeck trailer range has the company’s unique beam axles with heavy duty leaf springs. Brilliantly simple in concept, the design has undergone considerable development over the years to give you arguably the most dependable trailer axle system in existence. The untized wheel bearings are sealed for life and require no maintenance or adjustment, cutting down on the already low servicing times.
No compromise has been made on wheel equipment either, top quality radial tyres being used throughout the low loader trailer range. The 185/60R12C on the LM and 145R10C 8PR on the LT may look like car tyres, but looks can be deceptive. In fact, they have been specifically developed for trailer use. Combining such small dimensions with such high carrying capacities is an amazing achievement and is a further contribution to safety, lowering the centre of gravity and widening the track to improve stability.
Excellent value for money
In today’s difficult commercial climate, purchasing decisions cannot be taken lightly. You can be assured, however, that you will not find a better value low loader trailer anywhere. It is our policy to ensure that this will always be the case.
